  • It hasn't.
    I do realize though, I am a better parent than I thought just from reading the craziness discussed here.

  • I got here after my kids had grown but reading some of these comments and post, I realize I did a really good job. But then parenting never stops, I don't care how old they are!

  • Helps me step back and get other points of view on an issue. I can handle things better after I think about it.

  • It hasn't helped. I don't come to CafeMom to seek parental advice.

  • I like the different view points, but my parenting style hasn't changed or bettered from it. It's just nice to see others go through a lot of the things I do. And it makes me greatful to be who I am when I see some of these posts.

  • It saved me durring my pregnancy far as once DS was born it helped with the teething....first child and I had no clue what was going on lol....But sadly I think that I have been bashed on here more then helped in parenting.

  • really hasn't. I guess I have gotten some helpful advice and suggestions that I've used, but I would have probably been fine without them. It has helped me become a better cook, though, lol. More than once I've come on here needing advice on a recipe I was making, and have gotten the help. :)
